's a mistake for people on wall street to assume that a romney administration is going to change the declining dynamics and the declining profitability. a republican president is not going to be able to do anything about decreased trading volumes, is not going to do anything about lower commissions per trades or the general trend in the industry toward contraction. i agree with maria. there may have been some sarcasm in this ad, but it was kind of lost on me as well. it just seemed absurd. >> i don't get it. >> it's very inside baseball. that's the kind of commercial you would run in-house for the amusement of the staff members. to play it publicly is a little poor taste. >> or that "saturday night live" would have done. i don't think romney is reversing a lot of these trends. if you think that's going to happen, that's probably not the case. >> i think we're missing one thing. my point would be in the '80s, the interest cost of our national debt was 18, 19% of the budget. last year it's about 9%. if the ten-year treasury goes back to the 5% neighborhood, which it was in 2007, the interest on

foreign policy address. speaking to an audience of cadets at the virginia military institute, romney hit on a wide range of hot button issues in the muslim world from the war in syria and the obama administration shifting response to the deadly attack on the nebs b -- the embassy in benghazi. republican candidate suggesting he would take a harder line to make sure that tehran does not get a nuclear weapon. >> i'll put the leaders of iran on notice that the united states and our friends and allies will prevent them from acquiring nuclear weapons capability. i'll not hesitate to impose new sanctions on iran and will tighten the sanctions we currently have. i'll restore the permanent presence of air cast carrier task forces in the eastern mediterranean and the gulf. i'll work with israel to increase our military assistance and coordination for the sake of peace we must make clear to iran through actions, not just words, that their nuclear pursuit will not be tolerated. >> despite his criticism that president obama has not slowed iran's nuclear ambition, mr. romney's plan isn't a lot differe
the strategy. >> yes. >> eliot: it seems at a political level mitt romney is capitalizing on what appears to be a moment of weakness by the administration but is not libya in essence a success story. >> yes, it's difficult for romney to talk about. he says today we're still in a battle between the tyrants and the democrats. that's not what is happening in libya today. that's what happened a year ago. when that happened, as jay carney pointed out, he was on the wrong side. he was not in favor of getting rid of gadhafi. you have these weak fragmented states, it's not clear what romney would do to assist these weak states to keep them from falling apart. >> eliot: in romney's speech, early in the speech he said and he goes on at some length after the attack this is in bengahzi, tens of thousands of libyans held a massive protest against the extremists who murdered the ambassador, even in an odd way there is internal inconsistency in his speech. he said because of what we did we brought democracy and those who launched the attack are the fringe element, and then he goes on to say we didn't--
this country as well as this administration, what are the implications for this race with governor romney now surging, as wejust reported, and the a pew research poll up from another four points, giving governor romney an advantage. >> what we need to know is whether this is a bounce that may fade or a genuine search for it which, it may not be. we may not know for some time. it seems to me that it is certainly possible that this is a genuine surge. that mitt romney has managed by virtue of his debate performance and augmented by his speech today, in which he certainly looked presidential in a presidential setting and spoke that some authority of foreign policy issues -- mitt romney may be getting to look like a series canada. the challenger to a sitting president -- he may have a lot of help from that conditions in the country in the eyes of the public, but he needs to pass the tests himself. one of the tests is am i acceptable as a plausible president myself. it seems to me that the debate may have created that image in the minds of the public. that is so, his chances have greatly improved.
. >> romney also criticized the obama administration for failing to declare the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya a terrorist attack. >>> with his opponent surging in the polls, president obama is campaigning with new urgency. he told donors in san francisco that it was time to get, quote, almost obsessive in their efforts to lobby friends and relatives in battleground states, and he declared, i very much intend to win this election. >>> our other big story of the week, the deadly meningitis outbreak linked to a shipment of steroids is claiming more lives. now 105 confirmed cases stretching throughout the country in nine states. so far eight people have died. 13,000 more people may still be at risk. the steroids contaminated by a fungus were delivered to two dozen states. fungal meningitis is not contagious -- again, not contagious -- but those injected in the spine are most at risk. >>> and now to a bizarre insect-eating contest in florida. by the time it was all over, the winner was dead. gobbled up dozens of giant roaches and worms at a deerfield park reptile store hoping to win a pyt
the first term of the bush administration. so what you're seeing happen in the romney campaign is that many of the old conflicts left unresolved as everybody left the white house on january 20, 2009 are being rekindled within the campaign. i'm not sure that governor romney has engaged with that rekindling yet because i'm not sure he's spent enough time with the foreign policy team from what they describe to me to really see the differences among his own advisors. >> rose: who has his ear? >> well, there's these people and there's others. i think more broadly there's three camps in the republican foreign policy firmament, what is excluded, which is the pat buchanan neoisolationist camp. then you have those tagged as neoconservatives, more comfortable with unilateral uses of force. they care an awful lot of what goes on inside of countries, whether they're democratic or not. then you have to traditionalist, when you mention bob zell leg, if governor romney becomes president romney, the real question becomes what's the balance between them and what will be his foreign policy philosophy. it doe
romney campaign is not necessarily well structured debate on this but the obama administration could poke holes that romney for not being strong on the right response to the housing crisis. charles: universally most people agree that housing has turned the corner. we also hear inventory because people believe their homes will go up where they might have wanted to sell a year ago. does that work? >> is only room develop once the fed increases interest rates and put pressure on housing. charles: neither camp is pushing -- [talking over each other] >> a huge part of the economy they have to talk about. charles: much more on the housing market later this hour and we will ask the question is a home still the best investment a person can make? mortgage at record lows and home prices bouncing back. bob massey will join the company at 10:45. he has seen the market at its worst but does he still believe real-estate is the best bet? we will ask him. nickel, eli lilly shares at a four year high. where are they now. nicole: i love you are absolutely right. so many analysts jumping on board for their
today, mr. romney wanted president obama saying the administration has neglected farmers and the agriculture industry and he neglected rural vote increase the heartland. listen. >> there are big differences between the president and me. he has no plan for rural america, no plan for agriculture. no plan for getting people back to work and i do. you know i spoke about it all over the country. i'm going to make sure i help the american farmer and i help the economy and get america work again. >> to that end today, mr. romney again said that he would eliminate the estate tax, the so-called death tax and went further as he has on occasion during this campaign to say that he would eliminate capital gains and interest in dividends taxes on the middle class. all in an attempt to spur the economy. shep. >> shep: carl, what's the thinking on governor romney's bounce in the polls since that first big debate? >> they are very pumped here. the romney campaign is quite excited. they say there is more to come. they're building and talking about their ground game, grassroots, 4 million p
gets arms inside syria what happens after. so it's an enormously complex situation the issue romney raised is not illegitimate, it's all in the execution. >> rose: the question that remains for both administrations, is there a policy to look at the rise of the consequences of the arab spring and islamist governments? whether it's libya or syria or tunisia or egypt or other countries sdoshgs either of these candidates lay out a kind of strategic policy that's wise for the united states and a role to play that will be constructive? >> so foreign policy, you know, really, for the most part, has been largely absent from this campaign. i would argue the main reason for that, charlie, is that obama has i think conducted a quite efficient foreign policy. it hasn't been heroic but it's not a heroic age. i think hi he's basically kept the country safe and i don't think this is the time when americans are looking after two exusti and incredibly costly wars in the middle east to be making big foreign policy initiatives. now, that said, we do have the arab spring and things happen on your watch

, it fell below 8% on friday, according to administration officials. listen to romney last night in virginia talk about the unemployment rate. and 8%. listen what he said, john. >> we've seen the slowest recover from a recession in history. as a matter of fact, i just read that if you go back 60 years and look at all the bumps we had with unemployment above 8%, there were 39 months in all 60 years of unemployment. under this president there have been 43 months. >> romney not letting go of the 8% figure even though the unemployment rate has fallen there. he was in virginia last night. the unemployment rate is under 6% in virginia and iowa and approaching 7% in ohio. it's a tough argument for romney to make in certain swing states. >> mitt romney trying to maybe muddle the issue, talking about the 8% figure. you can stay with cnn for the vice presidential debate on thursday night. our coverage begins at 7:00 eastern. you can also go to cnn.com. >>> it's 16 minutes past the hour. let's get you up to date with our top stories. >>> jerry sandusky faces life behind bars when he's sentenced later t
romney broke ground was on syria. critical of the obama administration of doing essentially very little, more than 20,000 syrians have lost their lives and he's specifically talking about upping the army of the opposition and giving them one way or the other. sort of stuff they need of the shoot down syrian planes or tanks. this would be a major step forward and basically say we're not going to get involved ourselves, but no-fly zone or lesser american boots on the ground. but if mitt romney had his way, we would lean much more forward toward arming the syrian opposition. once you give arms, you lose control, who knows whose handses they end up in. >> and by the way, as we said when we were talking about benghazi, talking about libya six months ago, who was the opposition? >> on the other hand, there was something morally wrong. a lot of people would say not getting involved yourselves, now is the number of deaths have gone up above 20,000, those are your choices. >> look what happened in lebanon. you go arming those kind of sectarian factions, lebanon is the backyard. the track record
little keys. front page of the financial times, u.s. presidential candidate mitt romney said that the obama administration's policies had left the middle east a more dangerous place than it was four years ago. i can't wait to ask you about that, richard. >> fair enough. >> that speech was fascinating. >> new polls were taken after the debate. what did they show? >> i will get to it as soon as you zip it. >> whoa. >> the race is tightening with four weeks to go, a new pew research center survey shows romney leading obama 49% to 45% in a national head-to-head match-up among likely voters. those most committed to participating in the november election. there is good news for the romney campaign in michigan, a state where president obama was leading by ten points last month according to the detroit free press. after the debate, the same poll has the president's lead down to three points, well within the margin of error. perhaps the biggest gain for the romney campaign comes from that pew survey, which shows the republican candidate has made huge gains with women voters now tied w
administration was quick to put out a campaign add that showed his short comings. president obama and mr. romney faced off in a debate last week focused on domestic policy but the two men will meet on stage twice more in the coming two weeks and debate america's role in the world. "bbc world news," washington. >> now in just over an hour, the daredevil felix baumgardner is due to jump from the edge of space in a record-setting skydiving attempt. if he succeeds he will become the first person to go faster than the speed of sound without an aircraft. reporting from rozz well, new mexico. >> he will be taken 23 miles up by balloon to the edge of space. he is so might go up that if his space suit leaks, his blood will boil. he will break sound barrier. no one knows the effects it will have on him. >> we practiced this. this is my biggest dream. we are one step closer. i feel good at the moment. >> felix came to fame as a young base jumper, hurling himself off tall buildings and notoriously off the giant jesus monument. this time he is helped by engineers and his suit is allowing him greater movement
romney has said he is the opposite. he has criticized the administration's decision to stop defending doma he doesn't support the repeal and said that he opposes marriage equality believes he said in a recent debate that he believes there should be some recognition or protections for same -- loving same-sex couples, which was an interesting acknowledgment to -- to acknowledge that couples can be -- can be loving couples and yet still hold out that there should be a different system. >> bill: where is mitt romney on don't ask don't tell? >> mitt romney has not said that he would reinstate it. >> bill: unlike rick santorum. >> right. and paul ryan his running mate obviously, said that he believed that it was a done issue, and we had to -- it was time to move on. >> bill: yeah. >> there was some language in the party platform that people like elaine donnelly who had been one of the -- you are familiar with her -- her work? >> bill: oh god, yes. >> she had certainly praised certain language in the platform that talked about reassessing military policies, and that milit
's -- that's the sort of body language and also the language that governor romney used this summer where he did suggest that israel has the ability to make the decision itself. i by the obama administration has been more his important to give israel any such green light. i think both have said an nuclear weapon is unacceptable but where you may see a little bit more difference is romney may be inclined earlier to bless a israel decision to use force or participate in it in himself. i think it's an important nuance. >> jennifer: very quickly what further sanctions could help to bring iran to the negotiating table? i think the sanctions were already pretty tough. >> i think they are. i think it's a punishment strategy more than a persuasion strategy. you know at some point they agree to a compromise position but basically we're hurting them a lot already. if their oil exports are down by half, the currency has declined by half anyway but the regime may not care, and that's the real dilemma. >> jennifer: sure. i really appreciate you coming inside "the war room" to e
our values. well, that's precisely what the administration is doing. so, with the headline grabbing phrase here is arm the syrian rebels, that's not what this administration -- our administration is doing right now, and it's actually not what mitt romney said he would do in the speech. what he said he would do is exactly what this administration is doing. we're working with the people in the region, trying to identify and organize the syrian political opposition. >> we're working, general clark, but we're providing communications and some non leathal assistance. and like -- clearly the action gets worse not better. so what we're providing has not mitigated this horrible prosecution by assad and his henchmen. what else can we do other than a couple phones? >> well, ashley, the work we're doing is not just providing communications. that's the start of this. what we're actually doing is trying to help build leadership because somebody has to be politically in charge of the people who are using the weapons. otherwise, you may as well just pull the ship up to the port, unload the weapons
